Gillian Executive Search is in its 14th Year!

Very exciting and we must thank all our clients and candidates who have helped make our business such a success. In two more years, our company can legally drive!  Seriously though, thank you all so very much and we look forward too many more years of shared success. This all started when Kipp Gillian, then a Project Manager/Mechanical Engineer for a national construction company, thought that the real estate business was completely under served by the recruiting arena. He set out to make recruiting more like a “Jerry Maguire” experience, where he, as an agent, was someone you could trust for the long haul and not just some sales person who wanted to make a quick buck. So far that passion, knowledge and dedication has worked for him, his team, candidates and employers at Gillian Executive Search.

This year we take that notion a step further. No one knows the real estate recruiting industry better than GES and we’ve witnessed firsthand how irrelevant job boards are when finding and placing talent in this industry. Through immense testing of Monster, Hot Jobs, Indeed, Linkedin and Zip Recruiter we have found that these job boards have zero interest in providing a strong talent pool. Anyone can sign up and anyone can apply for your job. This results in 100s of worthless resumes before you can even find one person remotely worth hiring. So as the adage goes “see a need, fill a need” we set out build a robust “Recruiting Cloud” for the industry. We’ve partnered with the best in marketing, web design and real estate data to bring you……REQUEST FOR TALENT (!!

We review and insure that the talent and employers on this platform are better than any you will find elsewhere.  We have overseen the design to ensure that talent and client profiles provide information that really matters to professionals in the industry such as project lists and photos, relevant search terms, printable resumes and more. In addition, the communication hub for RFT is completely customized providing a new, fresh and easy to understand recruiting process for the employer and talent. No more “connecting” no more “friending” just RECRUITING.

Request For Talent (RFT) is our gift to the real estate community. Our site is being developed so please sign up at to be the first to know when we launch PLUS receive promotional offers!

Thank you so much!
